jewsign Jew Lawyer Pulls Holohoax Card in Same-Sex Marriage Fight

His grandfather escaped from the Treblinka death camp, his grandmother died there.
Decades later, when Witold "Vic" Walczak returned to his family's native Poland, a young man amid the Solidarity protests of the 1980s, he got knocked around and strip-searched by police. "At that point, I knew I wanted to be a civil liberties attorney," said Walczak, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania.

Today, Walczak helps lead the legal fight for what is fast becoming Pennsylvania's preeminent civil rights issue: gay marriage.

He's co-lead counsel, with Philadelphia lawyer Mark Aronchick, in the federal lawsuit seeking to overturn the state law that defines marriage as solely between a man and a woman.

No hearing date has been set, but the furor hasn't subsided since the suit was filed July 9 in Harrisburg by 10 gay couples. More than 20 gay couples were issued marriage licenses in Montgomery County last week after Register of Wills D. Bruce Hanes announced he believed the state law was unconstitutional and would not enforce it. Republicans accused Hanes of overstepping
authority by ignoring a law he didn't like, and protesters gathered at the office on Friday.
